Stranger Things just dropped its last two episodes of season 4 as the Netflix juggernaut released part 2 of its fourth season yesterday, bringing this season to a dramatic conclusion.
However, fans are left with wonders if the show will return for its fifth or this season 4 will be the final season, so here is everything that we know about another season.
Stranger Things is undoubtedly one of the most popular shows on Netflix, wowing the world with a splendid character line-up and fascinating storyline and this makes people eager to know more about it.
Set in the 1980s primarily in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, the series centers around numerous supernatural events occurring around the town, specifically around their connection to a hostile alternate reality called the “Upside Down”, after a link between it and Earth is made by a government child experimentation facility.
The show was originally called ‘Montauk’ and took inspiration from an alleged US Military program named The Montauk Project which, legend has it, including experiments on children involving mind-reading, mind control and time travel.
The series stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Joe Keery, Cara Buono, Matthew Modine, Dacre Montgomery, Sean Astin, Paul Reiser, Maya Hawke, Priah Ferguson, and Brett Gelman.
Jamie Campbell Bower, Joseph Quinn, Eduardo Franco and Cara Buono also star. Tom Wlaschiha, Nikola Đuričko, and Mason Dye appear in recurring roles.
Will there be a Stranger Things season 5?
Yes, there will be a Stranger Things Season 5. Netflix has already renewed its hit series for a fifth. “5 is just going to be pedal to the metal from the opening scene,” Ross Duffer told The Wrap(opens in new tab), hinting that whatever happens, it’s going to be emotional. “I saw executives crying who I’ve never seen cry before and it was wild.”
Will it be the final season?
Unfortunately, when announcing another season of the series, the Duffer Brothers announced that season 5 will be the finale season.
Season 5’s premiere?
Before the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the production of Stranger Things Season 4, it took between 15-19 months for Netflix to produce a new season of Stranger Things. That means we could see Stranger Things Season 5 in late 2023 or early 2024.
Shooting for Season 4 started in January 2020 but was halted in March due to Covid-19. The shooting resumed in September of the same year, but we didn’t get to see it before May 2022. It was an unusual process, and the Duffer brothers don’t expect it to happen again.
Season 5 and spin-off
The Duffer Brothers, creators of Stranger Things, recently confirmed in an interview confirmed that there is a spin-off in the upcoming season. Even in the letter announcing season 5 as the final season, the creators hinted that there are still many more exciting stories to tell within the world of Stranger Things; new mysteries, new adventures, new unexpected heroes.
